Pernille Lund Kasper

During her studies, Pernille Lund Kasper examined an air cleaning technology based on the oxidative absorption of reduced sulfur compounds with metal catalysts of iron and copper. The main objective of the research was to optimize the process for treating exhaust air from mechanically ventilated livestock buildings for emission control and deodorization. Furthermore, Pernille Lund Kasper completed elaborate research to test the applicability of the current odor quantification method for evaluating abatement technologies.

The new research findings include metal catalyzed processes, which could be successfully implemented in livestock production and insights into the limitations of the current odor evaluation method.

The PhD degree was completed at the Department of Engineering, Air Quality Engineering, Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
